every time I call PDGA headquarters, they answer the phone fast, and reply to all my questions and concerns immediately over the phone, anddd I'm doing it through relay. Imagine how much faster it is for you guys since no relay. Email is good, but PDGA headquarters is much better with answering the phone and helping you out. I waited about 2 months for my first ever PDGA new member package and its pretty nice to have.
As far as fees goes, I think it's pretty cheap considering there's a full active staff helping run the PDGA on so llittle membership. Last time I looked there were only 4 thousand active members. For the PDGA to be more efficient and for the sport to grow mainstream recogniztion, cheapaxes need to start joining up and paying the fees etc. Disc Golf may be the fastest growing sport in the world but until we all start contributing to PDGA and to the courses finacially, we will be stuck in the mud trying to get the mainstream attention that we all so desire.
Just as a note; DDGA has an executive board running the website everyday and is the governing body for Deaf tournaments and all the extra stuff etc. Membership fees are $20 for new, $10 for renew and all the work done for DDGA is volunteer. Sadly a big factor in the inability to grow more is the fact that a majority of Disc Golfers in the general population want to have the sport as cheap as possible.
